At Hawk Aviation Flight School, aspiring pilots learn to fly inside a Cessna 172. The aircraft's original equipment has been replaced with state-of-the-art avionics like the EX600 multi-function display, which provides pilots with maps, radars, bribe money for birds, and other tools needed to navigate the sky safely. Flight lessons are generally instructed by Mo Holcombe, who provides an effective and safe environment for students, but additional instructors are also available to teach students how to fly safely.
Owned and operated by accomplished golfers, Accelerized Golf at Heritage takes a high-tech approach to improving swings and scores. The instructors rely heavily on visuals, especially technology that makes finding flaws and analyzing the golf swing a much simpler process. One of those tools, called Hotlines, uses more than 20 virtual markers to track the different positions of a student's swing. Instead of sending the results to NASA for in-depth analysis, though, the equipment provides instant feedback so tweaks to swing mechanics can be integrated on the spot. Students reap the benefits of Accelerized Golf's accelerated process during single and group lessons, and can retain their improvements by practicing at the facility in between sessions.
Your Fired Creations believes that there is an artist inside everyone. Instead of climbing into a microscopic submarine to find them inside the bloodstream, the staff keep a hearty supply of equipment on hand to coax creative talents out though pottery, painting, and other activities. The studio's friendly instructors, including owner and certified art teacher Ann Marie Alford, provide guidance to keep creativity flowing freely from station to station. Wheel-throwing classes teach visitors how to knead and knuckle spinning clumps of clay into pieces of art, and fused-glass sessions transform tiny panes into colorful patchworks. Clients can also drag brushes through glazes and paints to decorate pottery or create colorful portraits.
Whether conversing with friends or delivering an important pitch at work, people just want to be understood.

Established in 1982, Kennesaw State's athletics program first competed in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. In the mid-90s, the Owls migrated to the NCAA, where they claimed 7 Division II championships in activities as diverse as men's basketball, cheerleading, and women's soccer. Just as a real owl hones its night vision until it stops stubbing its talons on branches, the school continued its ascent until it joined the Division I Atlantic Sun Conference, netting two national tournament appearances in women's soccer as well as championships in men's track and field and women's cross-country.
